Ominous Front Door of a 1920s building

Book cover
Buyer review complete, Marketplace review

I'm looking for an artistic image of an exterior door to an institutional building built around 1920. Rather than a documentary type image, Im looking for an evocative, artistic shot that should convey a subtle sense of anxiety and apprehension.

Dramatic lighting would be preferred and the door could be either shot in daylight or evening. Use of filters and unusual effects are encouraged.

The doors (double doors) should be closed.

This image will be used on the book cover of a memoir a woman's experience inside a mental institution. The memoir is essentially positive, though it does cover some harrowing events so the image should not be over-the-top scary, but it should convey a subtle sense of unease or anxiety.
